General Rules

  • All bets are settled on the result after 90 minutes play unless otherwise specified. This includes injury time but does not include extra time or penalty shootouts. On some occasions we may issue special extra time betting which will be on the 30 minutes including injury time added in that period.
  • If a match is postponed, bets on that match will be void unless it kicks-off before midnight local-time on the same day. Games which have their kick-off altered well in advance to accommodate live TV, or to ease fixture congestion will not constitute a postponement. Where a postponed match features as part of a multiple bet, the bet will stand on the remaining selections in the multiple.
  • If a match is abandoned, any bets where the outcome has already been decided e.g. half-time result or first team to score will stand. All other bets will be made void regardless of the score-line at the time of abandonment. Abandoned games will be deemed to be games which do not reach their natural conclusion on the calendar date.
  • Games where a referee removes the players from the field of play for a temporary period, but resumes the remaining minutes of play on the same calendar date will not be deemed as abandoned.
  • Games or markets where a result cannot be found will result in bets being made void 24 hours after the game has kicked off.
  • When a venue for a match is changed after the publication of odds, all bets will be void.
  • Timing markets will be taken from the information published by the official competition website or the Press Association.
